I'm a huge fan of dottybacks but I think you would probably be better going with the royal gramma.

Royal gramma's are great! Mine has his little cave, but is out 90% of the time. He even comes up to the glass when I come in the room now. Cool fish and It won't take any crap from bullies.

grammas are really cool, non-agressive and fun to watch. dottybacks are too, but they are more agressive and can really turn into little terrors, but are still awesome fish in the right tank. if you go dottyback, i would suggest the orchid dottyback (pseudochromis fridmani (sp?)) they are less agressive than the strawberry and other common dottybacks.

since all these fish have similar body shape, be careful about mixing them!

royal gramma is good, you might also want to look at one of the sleeper gobies to turn your sand for you if it's fine enough-- they "eat" it and it's sifted out of their gills.

I'm for the firefish, stunning colors and fun to watch. However, mine tends to hide in a cave when he gets scared, and they are excellent jumps, so make sure there is some sort of cover on the whole of the top of the tank!
